Well countless hours on phone with accuedrive today I think me a that dude ha learn some things about gear drives and ford blocks... My block is a early 87 if you look inside your lifter vally there is three casting letters XXX and YYY mine is a XXX block I guess there is a diffrence in the way the die was when it was casted... So I had to grind some metal off around that boss to get the to fit... So if anyone has this problem that's what you have to do... Or just put the damn chain back on like I should have.. Owell it's done, here is a pic ready to roll
Yeah that finger looks like one of my own. All twisted and beat up from years of working with our hands.
Anyways, I'm glad you got it sorted out.
I wondered about casting problems. I have seen things like this happen whenever you get a block with much core shift and now due to differences from mold to mold.
Happy gear banging and tire smoke.
